One of my most memorable moments as lead of the SoC PD my senior year was the ability to host Jerry Springer. No, he did not discuss his reality life, but rather his views on politics and the climate of the United States just weeks after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. In total, after only 14 days of planning and preparation, the event brought in over 300 students, faculty and locals.
As the lead for that event, I was in charge of not only delegating tasks to my interns, but also making sure that Jerry was comfortable and had everything he needed during his stay (including his favorite brew a Starbucks: a mocha with whipped cream). The experience was hectic due to swarms of students wanting photos, autographs and face time, but it is one that I will remember forever.
